I can't remember the exact name, but I try to put the syrup based  
drinks with a vinegar component into this file in the BEVERAGES  
section in the Florilegium:

syrup base such
                                        as Sekanjabin (Persian Mint  

This file also might be of interest to those considering citrus based  
drinks, and being told they weren't period:

being used
                                        in period for drinking and
